It appears that some of our National Guardsmen were attacked on the Mexico-Arizona border on Wednesday night.
According to the Border Patrol, an unknown number of gunmen attacked the site in the state's West Desert Region around 11 p.m. The site is manned by National Guardsmen. Those guardsmen were forced to retreat
The Border Patrol will not say whether shots were fired. However, no Guardsmen were injured in the incident.
Obviously, getting those men and women out of harm's way was the correct thing to do, especially if they were under fire. There ought to be, however, severe penalties for firing on American soldiers, perhaps something along the lines of air support and live ordinance.
These types of reports are getting more and more common, and I do not believe they are addressed in any of the current comprehensive immigration plans that I have seen on the table. . .
